We work every day to find better alternatives to traditional materials. Here is a little sneak peek of what we use and why :
- Plastic: as little as possible and it is recyclable when we have no other choice (pumps), 100% recycled (bottles), or, in some other cases, we use organic vegetal plastic made of sugar cane (bottles). This material is unfortunately still essential in the perfume industry for congestion, weight and cost reasons. We make sure to use only recycled, recyclable or natural products.
- Glass: non biodegradable, but infinitly recyclable. It is our main material at 100BON, as our bottle can be refilled. Nevertheless, this material is sometimes being too heavy or too pricey and can not be used for some product range.
- Packaging: indispensable to be sold in the majority of the outlets, they are simplified to the maximum : no hold and a biodegradable paper case.
- Cellophane (plastic): prohibited at 100BON (which was a little an obligation for some security reasons. So, we decided to use an organic cellophane made out of potato.
